Pillars of Eternity II randomly locks screen


Hello y'all,


I was wondering if anyone else have this issue as well:

sometimes during gameplay, the screen will randomly lock up, leaving the current frame frozen in place, but the sound will keep on playing and I can still move my party around (I can hear the footsteps) but as I said, the frame is frozen.


It happens every half an hour or so. 


I've read somewhere that this can be fixed by updating drivers.  No results.  I've also read that it can be fixed by disabling the Steam overlay.  Also no results. 


I also tried playing in fullscreen and windowed, no difference.


My setup:


Processor: Intel Core i5-3570K CPU 3.40GHz

Windows 10 64 bits

RAM: 8 gb

Graphic Card: GeForce GTX 660 Ti, Driver version: 397.93


To be entirely honest, it's not game-breaking, but it's really annoying.  I'm loving the game so far, but it takes away from the experience when you have to save every 30 seconds to make sure you don't lose any progress.


Thank you,

My apology for any inconveniences you have been experiencing with these random freeze and crashes. If possible, any chance for you to provide us with crash and output logs so we can investigate this issue on our end?
